Angry Coil Pack Help?

Cylinder 3 is missing. I have changed the plug and ran injector cleaner through it. Still seems to still miss but hasn't re-tripped the service engine light. Someone suggested I check the coil pack. Where is the coil pack? What does it look like and how can I test it?

I suggested that you check coil pack.
The 99 & up cars have whats called coil on plug, Which means the coil is located directly on top of the plug. If you have replaced the plug you already have had the coil off.

I can't give you the numbers, but you need to test the primary and secondary..... what's the word, you need to test resistance between two differnt points. You need to test across the two harness plug points, and then test between one of the points and the connecting tip at the spark plug end with a multi meter for resistance. I'll check and see, I wrote this up in a thread somewhere else.

Anybody got a Haynes or Chiltons handy?
